A DUTCH-COLONIAL SILVER FILIGREE CASKET

Probably Indonesia, Padang, early 18th century, apparently unmarked

In the form of a temple or sarcophagus, small damages to the lid, one foot and the catch lacking.

H. 10.5 x W. 11.8 x D. 8.7 cm

 

Note:

Since silver filigree boxes are unmarked, it is often difficult to know where they were made unless one knows the provenance. Silver filigree was made in Europe but most of these items, made for the European market, came and still come from Asia; India (Goa and Karimnagar), Indonesia (Batavia and West Sumatra), Sri Lanka and China (Canton) and in all these different places it were often mainly Chinese silversmiths who were involved in making silver filigree work.
